Very fun, very educational tour through a rum distillery! Samples for those over 21. It was cool to see how they make the rum as well as their personal history. The gingeroo is excellent! Save room to take some of their rums home!

Wife and I went on a Thursday afternoon, got picked up from the French market (highly recommend, it's off the beaten path). Jeff was awesome, rum was unique, history of the company was interesting.

We purchased our tickets online. The process was straightforward and really a breeze. We arrived a little early by car to confirm the location. Came back after grabbing a cup of coffee off Esplanade. They offer free on street parking. We had a small group of 5 total people on the first tour of the day (they offered Noon, 2... More

I didn't know what to expect but our guide, Jeff was an absolute hoot and made everyone feel welcome. He was very knowledgable and had great jokes. The rum tasting after the tour was very interesting. That's the place to buy the rum because of laws, they can sell their rum for less than anywhere else.

First off, too far to walk from the French Quarter, they offer a free shuttle service which is wonderful. Staff is wonderful, personable, friendly and treats everyone like friends. Tour is short but very informative and free samples are always great! Was very pleased!

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our tour of the distillery and the generous cocktails and samples we received. Jeff was a great tour guide. He was extremely personable and was interested in getting to know everyone on the tour - where they were from, what brought them to New Orleans, etc. He had a wealth of information on the... More

Jeff was a great tour guide, heard about far more than just how rum is made. The tasters were also delicious and plentiful- excellent start to an evening.

My wife and I had just gotten back from a 9:30 a.m. swamp tour (Cajun Pride) and, after grabbing a bite to eat, headed to the distillery for our 2:00 p.m. tour. We had booked the tour in advance online at $12.00 per person instead of the $10.00 that we had seen in the ad. This did not bother us... More

Really enjoyed our tour of the distillery. Jeff, our tour guide, was a wealth of information and very entertaining!! All of the rum varieties and the Gingeroo (hard gingerale) were good and we bought several bottles to take home.

We were looking for an indoor activity to beat the 100 degree heat. This tour offered pick-up/return, tasting, and tour for only $10/person. Was interesting and enjoyable tour that did not eat up an entire day. Tour guide Jeff was a hoot and gave us directions to an out of the way lunch spot.
